Over a third of Americans browse the web on their mobile phones

The Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project has just published Mobile Access 2010; a report that looks at wireless internet use in the USA.

It says as of May 2010, 59% of all adult Americans use their laptops or mobile phones to go online wirelessly – either via WiFi or a mobile broadband card.

The percentage of people using their phones to browse the mobile web is up from 25% last year to 38% this year. 34% have used their mobiles for email – also up from 25% last year – with gaming, instant messaging and texting all showing increases as well.

In addition, 54% have used their mobile device to send someone a photo or video, 23% have accessed a social networking site using their phone and 11% have purchased a product using their phone.

The report notes that minority Americans are more likely to own a mobile phone than their white counterparts and are also more likely to go online with their phones.
